orphan: remnant in ellipsis

The ‘orphan’ relation is used in cases of head ellipsis where simple promotion would result in an unnatural and misleading dependency relation. The orphan is dependent on the word promoted to head position:

En prins er født, navnet klart til uken \n A prince is born, name ready next week
conj(født,navnet)
orphan(navnet,klart)
Jeg er norsk i Norge, og fransk i Frankrike \n I am Norwegian in Norway and French in France
conj(norsk,fransk)
orphan(fransk,Frankrike)

orphan in other languages: [bm] [cop] [cs] [de] [el] [en] [fi] [fr] [fro] [ga] [gsw] [hy] [it] [ja] [kk] [kpv] [myv] [no] [pcm] [pt] [ro] [ru] [sv] [swl] [tr] [u] [yue] [zh]
